I promise not to make a fuss for your birthday, no calls, etc. but I really would like to get you something, I love my Hermes scarf and want you to have something that you can say I bought you for your 30th. Now don’t refuse again and tell me what you want!

Bugger, I forgot about that scarf. Well, the only thing I can think of at the moment is a Palm Pilot. But get a second hand one off eBay.  Basically, I want something that I can use for MP3s, as an alarm clock, a phone (for desperate emergencies, and only with an earpiece. Have you SEEN those people who use their Palm Pilots as mobiles? They look like they’ve dropped out a time machine from the 80’s), a scheduler and a contact list.

Or a nice watch would be good, a crappy old Rolex. How much would a shitty, scratched up one be? If you’re gonna have a Rolex, it has to look old and crappy. It’s just too vulgar otherwise. Although Mum did buy me a watch for my 18th, and she might feel bad if I stop wearing it.

You could book me in for some lipo – that’s on the Practical list, ha ha!  Or an old laptop. I don’t need a fancy laptop, just something small that I can use for writing and pack away. I’d get a normal PC but they’re so ugly and they take up too much room. I think a laptop would be too pricey tho — I DON’T WANT YOU TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY. It would be ideal if you could get a hot one, nice and cheap, ha ha!

I don’t know, they’re not very practical suggestions. I’ll try harder, I promise.

And do you know, I FORGOT to call Dick, hee hee hee! He’s probably left town again by now. Ah well, never mind! How far do you reckon I can push him before he’s gonna snap?
